    Is Derick an Ayn Rand fan?

  2. Lindsey May

    Hey Derick. I was just curious if you had read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, and if so what your thoughts on it were.

  3. Regina Shea

    Congratulations! I will most likely need to check it out at our public library. My book budget currently is at 0. Jill can you write a post on your Bible study routine and what you use. Do you follow a particular study method such as S.O.A.P, The James Method, or something like that?

      Hi Regina,

      I hope this leaves you feeling good as I have an idea for you. My book budget is at 0 or might as well be in the negative lol. What I found was helpful was that audible on my phone was offering a free trial and was able to listen to the book for free that way. If you’re able and interested, feel free to give this a try. I certainly cannot wait to buy my own copy some day though!

        Thank you Alison! I will give it a try.

    Just finished your book! I loved it! Eye opening for sure! So happy you and Derick have told your truths, and I pray healing and peace for you and your family. I pray others in your family have the insight to see what has happened, or is still happening and that they will realize they can leave a toxic life and also heal.

    just got the audio version of the book and loving hearing your story in your voice! You are so brave to let your struggles out to the world. I prey for peace and happiness for your family. I am also a boy mom so understand the struggles!!

  6. Lorna Marshall

    I listened to your audiobook so quickly. I was one that watched the show from day one and you were one of my favorites! After hearing your story, it warms my heart to hear your truth to becoming free. It’s great to hear that your familly is well too. Keep being you and encouraging others!

    I just went and bought the hard cover at Amazon. Can’t wait to read it!

    I’m reading the book now (half way through) and I must say that it’s a very compelling, heartwarming and heartbreaking story at the same time.

    It’s obvious that viewing from the outside (watching TV) we assume or take for granted what’s happening within a family because they become an integral part of our lives, through TV, when in fact we don’t have a clue what is going on behind the scenes.

    This book is so well written and clears the air, tells the Truth on how things truly went down. I highly recommend it to everyone.
